Introduction to Market Abuse Regulation

Introduction to Market Abuse Regulation

Where rules against market abuse exist, these rules are usually split into two concepts: Insider Dealing and Market Manipulation. In this video, Stephen provides an introductory overview of what market abuse means in the context of the European Union.
Overview

Market abuse can be divided between insider dealing and market manipulation. Assessing whether information is “inside” can be quite complicated and needs to be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Similarly, market manipulation is difficult to define, but there are behaviours that are consistently described as being considered market manipulation. If you are unclear whether information is inside information, you should consult your compliance officer or legal team.

Key learning objectives:

  • Describe market abuse, inside information, and market manipulation

  • Explain MAR

  • Explain what actions an individual and organisation should take to prevent insider dealing
